Learn about the history of the Holocaust on a full-day trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau from Warsaw. Alongside your guide, you’ll visit the site of the former Nazi extermination camp and delve into the history of the Third Reich. See preserved wooden watchtowers and barbed fences, and behold suitcases, shoes and documents that belonged to Jewish prisoners in the site’s museum. On this small-group tour — limited to eight people — an intimate atmosphere is guaranteed.
After pickup from your Warsaw hotel, board an air-conditioned coach destined for Auschwitz (Oswiecim). Along the way, you’ll receive a historical introduction to the former Nazi extermination camp from your guide.
On arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau, begin a guided tour of the museum in your small group. See preserved wooden watchtowers, railway ramps and barbed fences that conjure the atmosphere of the concentration camp.
See, too, belongings such as shoes, suitcases and documents that belonged to Jewish prisoners in the site’s comprehensive museum. Then, take a short ride to Birkenau camp — the extermination and labour camp where 90% of prisoners were killed — to enrich your knowledge of the Holocaust.
Midway through the tour, you’ll receive a traditional Polish lunch of soup and a main dish. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Warsaw hotel.
